Rose Gold gives you the prettiest of slice onion from bulbs growing on robust and reliable plants. Rose Gold scores high marks both in the kitchen for salads and an essential ingredient to gamey casseroles and does well for performance outdoors during the growing process.
The unusual variety gives you full and generous-sizes bulbs from late summer. Simply harvest your plants as the green leaves start to yellow and wilt whether this is from a raised planter such as a Veg Trug or directly from an allotment bed.
How to plant:
Prepare the soil by raking the area after sprinkling some pre-planting Onion, Garlic and Shallot Feed over the area. Create a shallow trench and place your sets (pre-planted bulbs) 10-12cm (4- 4 1/2in) apart. Fill the trench so that the tips of the sets are poking above the soil. Keep well-watered in dry spells.
At harvest time let the intensity of your onions mellow a little by leaving them outside on the plot resting on straw or similar. Then collect them, plait them up and hang them in a dry, cool shed to use as and when you require.
I have bought my onion sets from you for many years This year for the first time the sets were delivered with green sprouts The Fenn Globe packet in particular many with sprouts one and a half inch long Quite useless !
